    I was just wondering who should have button holes?

    We were planning on:

    Best man

    As they are all in the matching suits

    Is this right or should the mums have them too?

    Thanks x

    we are getting the mums corsages, more lady like buttonholes with 3 flowers in each.
    I was thinking of that. Maybe I'll get them something too so they feel more included. Thanks for the input

    :) I need to look into this myself matching suits is going to be kind of difficult as i cant get my whole family over for the suit fitting... but i think id only get buttonholes for the man/ushers/page boys...

    Traditionally you provided buttonholes for all your guests! It's all rather different now though. OH, fob, fog & bm will have buttonholes and mob and mog will have corsages. There will be some different buttonholes available for the guests that want them - but I would stress that this is only because oh's aunt is doing our flowers so these will just be made out of leftovers.

    Im having dilemmas about this I think I might get everyone one as there are only 36 guests. I will getthe ladies ones with crystals and the gents just plain ones. But the mothers will have special ones and the brial party males will have special ones but no crystals

    We're only providing them for our immediate families. We've got 150 guests coming to the daytime so would be too expensive :0S
    But our mums are gonna have a corsage. As i'm having male bridesmaids their buttonhole will match the female bm bouquets.
    However we're going to a wedding 2moro and we're all having a buttonhole - so up to u and how much u can budget x

    is Mrs Suzie Bear!!!!
    Gotta be pink!!! :0)
    I think I blinked and missed our wedding!! lol
    Thats what I thought suzie we have too many people. It would get so expensive. I think I will stick with the boys in the suits and the Mums and thats it.

    Ruchick. Both our dads are in the matching suits. But it is completey up to you x
